Kyler Murray can be quite dynamic behind center, but his actions this offseason seemed to have scared away teams.
The Arizona Cardinals are certainly not looking to trade him, but the fact that he and the team are sort of at odds has not produced any teams garnering any interest in the quarterback. According to recent reports from NFL insider Michael Silver, no team has reached out to GM Steve Keim about a possible trade for the former No. 1 overall pick.
“As of Tuesday, not a single team had reached out to Keim to inquire about the possibility of trading for Murray,” Silver wrote in a piece for Bally Sports. “Granted, the response almost certainly would have been, ‘Don’t bother; we’re not trading him.’ Yet it seems strange that no one has at least asked the question, and I can’t imagine there won’t be overtures in the coming weeks.”
After a report of issues between the fourth-year quarterback and his team, Murray attempted to quiet that noise. However, his agent soon sent a extension proposal/mission statement.
“Actions speak louder than words in this volatile business,” the statement read. “Kyler remains hopeful that the organization chooses to commit so that he can continue leading the Cardinals to further success and value for many years to come.”
That proposal prompted Larry Fitzgerald Sr. to call out the QB for being spoiled.
“He’s spoiled,” Fitzgerald Sr. tweeted. “[B]rings his Oklahoma offense to the NFL team has to catch up great talent. He’s never been humbled keep working.”
Fitzgerald Sr. is a longtime sportswriter at the Minnesota Spokesman-Recorder. His son played wide receiver with Murray on the Cardinals in 2019 and 2020.
Murray is coming off a disappointing playoff performance that saw the Cardinals fall to Los Angeles in the Wild Card round. Through 14 regular-season games in 2021, he logged 3,787 yards, 24 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
